We have nearly reached the end of another busy term! The children are really enjoying our Secret Garden topic and this will continue after the holidays. They have enjoyed challenges to create a clay flower and to work in a potting shed where they have to work out how much it will cost to plant their seed and write instructions for looking after it. They may be bringing these home.
Next week we will be walking to the church on Wednesday afternoon to watch the Easter Service which is led by Year 4. We are still short of parents to walk down with us so if you are able to come, please can you let your child’s teacher know.
On Thursday afternoon it is the Spring Fayre. Infants may be collected from their classrooms from 2pm to attend the Fayre (please note that juniors are collected from 2.30pm onwards). Children will not allowed to go unaccompanied but may attend the Fayre after school if they are picked up at the usual time.
School finishes for the Easter holidays on Friday 7th at 1pm. Children may bring a more substantial snack that morning as they won’t be having lunch at school. School begins again after the holidays on Wednesday 26th April.
